Boston Celtics at Indiana Pacers Predictions & Tips

Indiana are tipped to cover as an underdog once again in Game 4.

The Pacers showed in Game 3 that they can push Boston despite Tyrese Haliburton's absence, and this Celtics group has been an unreliable spread pick when favoured by seven points or more.

  • Indiana have covered in 5 of their 7 home games in the playoffs
  • Boston have failed to cover the spread in 5 of their last 7 games
  • The Celtics have covered in just 2 of their last 7 games when favourites of 7 points or more
  • The Over has cashed in 7 of the last 8 meetings

Head To Head

  • Boston Celtics lead the all-time series 129-97
  • Boston Celtics lead this NBA Playoffs series 3-0
  • Boston Celtics won 114-111 when the two teams last met on May 25

Boston Celtics Form

Boston go into tonight's game with an opportunity to clinch an Eastern Conference Finals sweep on the road.

The Celtics, who put together a league-best 64-18 record during the regular season, made straightforward progress to the conference finals by beating both Miami and Cleveland 4-1.

They rebounded from a surprise 111-101 home defeat to Miami in Game 2 with 104-84, 102-88 and 118-84 victories to progress to the second round.

Boston lost the second game of their series with Cleveland too, but they again responded immediately to a loss, beating the Cavaliers 106-93, 109-102 and 113-98 to advance to the conference finals.

The Celtics then took their win streak to seven games and took command of this series, backing up 133-128 (OT) and 126-110 home wins with a 114-111 victory in Indiana that has left them just one win away from a return to the NBA Finals.

Indiana Pacers Form

Indiana go into their second home game of the series knowing that one more defeat will bring an end to their season.

The Pacers, who went 47-35 in the regular season, rebounded from a Game 1 loss to win four of the next five games and down Milwaukee 4-2 in the first round.

They then took the full seven-game series to finally dispatch New York in the second round of the NBA Playoffs.

Each team won their first three home games of the series, before Indiana finally ended that trend and sealed their place in the conference finals with a 130-109 win in New York.

The Pacers have not won since though and now find themselves on the brink of elimination, having lost 133-128 (OT) and 126-110 in Boston, before returning home for a 114-111 defeat to the Celtics.

Verdict

Boston are on the verge of a series sweep, but there are still reasons like the Pacers with the points.

Indiana have covered the spread in two of the first three games of the series and have been a reliable pick on the road during the playoffs so far.
